Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What travellers are saying
- Went on a 1 day guided tour. This was during second half of Golden Week when weather deteriorated. On the plus side, no crowds. But also no views. Generally speaking, I would try to avoid any holidays or weekends for walking to the summit as some stairs are narrow, only allow one way traffic and can get pretty crowded. Despite limited to no views, a must do when in China and in Anhui province, a sacred mountain with otherwise great views and also some interesting birds to see.Written 31 October 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- If you didn't get enough steps walking up Mt Huangshan, take this side trip. Approximately 1 hour each way with steeper stairs than you encountered before. Worth it? You bet!Written 1 November 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The mountain was a highlight and took a full day. Wish we would have spent another full day in the area to explore more at the base as there is quite a few things to do. We would say two days in the area would be perfect! During our trip in December it was quite chilly so remember to bring good boots and a few layers you can quickly change in and out of. Food in the park is a bit overpriced so plan to bring stuff in from town. A stay on the mountain looks nice but we stayed in Tangkou Town and enjoyed our time all the same!Written 22 December 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Did not do enough homework to realize how challenge and somewhat dangerous this hiking is. It is an ultimate hiking especially with strong wind. Tian Du Feng is due to close for five years after Dec. 1. Took us almost 2 hours to complete the hiking. The views from the top of mountain is second to none. Ten of 16 us completed the challenge. Three of us gave up right before reaching the top around the turning because it was very strong wind. In addition to the gorgeous views, we were so lucky to see the “Buddha light”. My friend who had been Huangshan 39 times, only saw it once (twice including this trip. The tour guide only saw twice in his 20 some years professional career. It’s a huge challenge and definitely worth hiking to to top. However, don’t push yourself. After all, safety is the #1 priority.Written 15 November 2018
- The hot springs are on the more expensive side but are worth the trip in our opinion. There are many different types of aroma pools with varying temperatures. During our visit we tried many different pools and our favourites were the carnation, ginseng and red wine pools! They also had vitamin C (citrus), milk and various floral ones. The temperatures of the water range from 36°C to 42°C.
We tried the hot springs after coming in from Hangzhou via train. There are lockers on site and they provide towels but Bath robes are extra. They do sell swim suits here but we would recommend bringing your own style. The shower facilities are pretty good and there is a steam room too. Due to covid we had to get ourselves pre-approved via our hotel's front desk with our health codes and travel itinerary prior to coming here. There are a few buses that go through Tankou Town directly to the hot springs and cost 11 RMB one way. Our hotel helped us to the bus stop and there is an English speaking manager at the hot spring that helped us get back to our hotel.
It is 178 RMB per person and we spent about 2 hours here in December. In the summer I could see us spending a little bit more time as there are lounge chairs.Written 21 December 2020
- Nice path leading through the valley. But this season you need to walk all theway to the Green Pearl Pool to see the clear and clean water, as emerald is in your mind!Written 9 November 2019
- If you are visiting China, you will surely see The Great Wall and perhaps the Terracotta Warriors, but Huangshan should be on your China bucket list. There are so many beautiful sights and wonders here. It is crowded but not like the other places I mentioned. Your China trip would feel empty if you don’t visit Huangshan and this peak is very accessible to people with even limited physical abilities.Written 24 June 2019
- The highest peak in Huangshan at 1846 m asl is worth climbing. The scenery on the way up is striking but most times are spent concentrating on the effort of the climb. It is steep, punishing. But the steps are well made and ropes are available to ensure a safe climb. At the top it is a crowded place, made worse by the climbers taking a long time with their selfies. It is not suitable for people with handicaps, afraid of heights.Written 4 June 2019
- We arrived on the number 6 bus from jixi (a 20 minutes journey costing 2 yuan). I'm a bit confused reading other comments about an entrance fee - perhaps they mean for entry to the mountains? Anyway we never encountered any fee. We only stayed here for one night on our way to qingliang peak natural reserve which is quite nearby. Although we had a little trouble with accommodation (as we had booked a place on booking.com which turned out not to exist), we got taken in by an old lady with a spare room who charged us 60 yuan for the room. We didn't have much time to explore the village but it was so beautiful and we were so happy that we got to see it even though it was brief. It seemed very small but also has the hills nearby that had plenty of hikers heading towards them in the morning. It's worth a visit if passing through.Written 8 August 2017
- Is this a must? To me it is. - Prefer an early arrival on days a lot of people are up. Everyone likes to do a photo of his own!Written 2 December 2019
- ...if we had not faced with a group of loud chinese tourists. They should ban tour guides on those annoying handheld horn speakers! Dang!! The horse ride at the entrance was nice though... We even had the opportunity to stop and pick strawberries at the farm nearby the attraction (usually not allowed but again, we were just plain lucky).Written 11 April 2014
- I asked my guide to take me here. He said it was pointless. I asked him to do so anyways just in case he wanted to not go out of his way but again, I should have listened. Where are the grottoes? It was a dumpy place where there were a few vendors and trinkets. This should be taken off of the places to do in Tripadvisor.Written 30 April 2017
